The slain Ferguson, Missouri teenager’s non-criminal history was revealed today, which didn’t sit well with Charles C. Johnson, a conservative blogger who filed a request for information on Michael Brown’s history, which should be irrelevant at this point.

Johnson has written for the Daily Caller as well, so his credentials are already suspicious.

When the news came out that the deceased teenager had no top felonies on his record, Johnson started spinning the news and wrote, “Gotnews.com has never said Brown was convicted–only that he was involved in one.”

He did by proxy via his Twitter account on August 19th.

 

Now he’s asking what a ‘serious felony’ is.

On GotNews.com he breathlessly wrote:

Juveniles, particularly those involved in gangs, aren’t usually convicted on a first offense. They are usually given probation, a plea bargain, or a reduced sentence.

Notice how he uses the word ‘purported’ then moves on to Brown’s stepfather. 

This purported lack of a criminal conviction is entirely consistent with what GotNews.com sources said. Brown’s stepfather, Louis Head, has a long rap sheet that includes gang activity. GotNews.com is currently working to obtain that entire arrest record but here are a few snapshots.

I am not going to include Johnson’s snapshots of the stepfather’s alleged activities. This is pure character assassination. I hope no one ever judges me by how my father acted in life. He was a jerk of the highest order, but that has nothing to do with me as a person. Suggesting that Brown was involved in a gang without proof of any sort, is despicable. It’s easy for him to do because of Michael’s race and the fact he’s no longer alive to defend himself.  That “long rap sheet” Johnson refers to consists of two arrests. If Michael Brown was complicit in criminal activity, or his stepfather was, that still does not mean he deserved to be gunned down on the street while unarmed. We’ll never know what kind of man Michael could have become, or the contributions to society he may have made, because his life was taken from him by Darren Wilson, who Johnson seems to be supportive of. Twitter users answered Johnson’s question for him. 




Keep digging, Charles. You look mahvelous! I’m not even going to do a Google search, but I’d bet that Charles went after Trayvon Martin with vigor. Just a hunch.

A far, far, far right wing blogger tweets:

Too late, Jim. You took his claim to heart previously.

    The death of Michael brown robbed the state prison system of one more criminal thug to occupy a cell. 38 years of working inside a maximum security prison qualifies for a degree of assessment of current and future convicts. After awhile, you can tell them from afar. This thug was on his way. Darren Wilson protected his life as he’s legally authorized to do.
    (See results of Grand Jury).
    Too bad the thug died, but better him than a cop. The cop was a productive member of society, which is something the entire brown clan never was, and never will be.

    Some of you people and your comments are pathetic. Did you not watch the video of Brown in the store, and how he assaulted the clerk and then turned back to intimidate and assault him yet again? That is a learned response, because this thug has been bigger and heavier than most people he came up against despite his young age. And then you get the eyewitness accounts of how Brown did the same thing again, against Officer Warren, where he assaulted him in his vehicle, went off a ways, then turned back to do it again. You wrap yourselves in your cocoon of racial equality and animus towards whites and attempt to turn this black thug into a saint, to feel like you have done something to change the way of society? Laughable and pitiable how you convince yourselves of your superiority and righteousness. YOU BHL’s (bleeding heart liberals) are what keeps racial equality from happening in this country with your obtuse and ignorant attacks against the upholders of law and order. Can’t stand the facts, can you, that there are decades of statistics that verify the lowly intellectual abilities of certain races, and that there is a hierarchy of intelligence built into homo sapiens? Look it up if you can stomach the truth of research … Asians first, Caucasians second, Hispanics third, and bringing up the rear is … guess what race? Looters and rioters. Have a jolly day.
